    #10[​IMG] VS #6[​IMG]

    Well we are heading into week 6 and it looks like the ACC play has began. Both of these teams come in undefeated and ranked in the TOP 25. Virginia Tech is led by Logan Thomas who has just been passing out of his mind with Coach RyanC's modified Air Raid playbook, while Clemson uses a more balanced style of playing. Virginia Tech averages 46.2 points a game which puts them at #2 in PPG. Clemson averages 21 a game which puts them at #98. Clemson sits pretty low at total offense and rushing. Virginia Tech is #16 in total offense and #16 in passing offense. Both of these teams have good D but Clemson has better sitting at #10 while Virginia Tech sits at #33. Clemson is ranked #28 in passing defense while Virginia Tech is #113 so it seems Clemson has to go to the air if they want this win.​

    My prediction:​

    I choose Clemson because they were easily able to beat their rival, a solid Florida State team and only held them to 10 points, so it shows their defense.​

    VT will win big here. They will force Clemson to pass and their QB will turn it over.

    Yeah our game in Overdrive was ridiculously defensive, I think we totaled 250 yards combined on offense

    Sheesh, my offense was clicking today. gg gwill, I really had to adjust my thought process to stop your offense after that first drive, you caught me way off guard.

    wow, clicking is an understatement. Of 8 drives you scored on 7 b/c the last drive you took a knee. I wasnt even mad b/c I didn't turn the ball over, just had stalled drives.

    I hate those days where it feels like your defense decided to stay home. The opponent's o-line gets off the ball quicker, guys miss tackles, it feels like you can NEVER get that 3rd down stop.

    It's like watching my Eagles against the Packers last year...

    I honestly didn't think it would be close, just thought it would be because of turnovers not stops.

    I had to run 3-2-6 and 3-3-5 almost predominantly because he was shredding my base nickel and dime packages early. Now I see why those are popular fronts against the spread in real football

    Well, he should find more success against a less talented Boston College team next week.

    yeah, but you may have a better defensive front seven, so you should have the luxury of being a bit more aggressive

    Nothing I called worked. Someone was always wide open. Add the fact that my d-line got 0 pressure and you get 45-7.
